Eyesore Colors and the Hat Story

Monday, September 24, 2012

I have two papansin colors: red and hot pink. And although favorite color ko is yellow
talaga, I tend to buy things in these other two "happy" colors. But ipagsama these two? Total
eyesore! Then I saw runway sightings and celebrities doing it (1, 2, 3), so I thought, why not!

Hot pink dress - SM GTW
Black Polo (used as cover-up) - Ukay find!
Red Wedges - SM Parisian
Hat - Forever 21
Photos by Tracy Ayson, thank you!

Tamang tama the dress code for the Lolita event "wear standout clothes". 

Naisip ko tuloy, what better occasion pa na matry natin mag red and hot pink combination!
Kung mag fail yung look, I can easily say "Nag standout naman diba?" 
Sa kabaduyan nga lang, Hehe.

And the best part! I won best dressed because of this fashion risk!
More kwentos here. I won P10K Forever 21 GCs!

The hat! While I was struggling my way to the stage when my name was called,
I heard one of them onstage said something like "It's the hat, I can see her from afar."

I actually just bought that hat before going the event, while waiting for Tracy!
I was looking for the dati ko pang covet fedora-ish hat, pero yung wide-brimmed...Anong tawag dito?
Anyway, hinalughog ko the stores in GB, Landmark, The Ramp, and then I reached SM Makati...
But guess where I found this, and on sale pa? Forever 21! :D (Meant to be kami ng GCs, lol)

"Saying you don't look good in a hat is like saying you don't look good in shoes!" (author unknown)

I mean, you fashionable people hoard shoes, but in my case I can't live without my hats! 
If you've been reading my blog for quite some time now, you'll know about my hats collection, 
dusting, but hindi ko sila mabenta benta! I'm a Mad Hatter at heart! :)

But of course, I will never underestimate the power of high heels! I think when I bought
this red pair in SM Parisian, they came with free confidence.

I realized, when you're too busy not to trip and fall in your 5-inch heels, you'll
forget about everything else. I forgot about my other insecurities like if my makeup needs
retouching, or if I look fat in my clothes. I just have to walk to wherever, look effortless,
and avoid matapilok. Lol.
